|Sidewalk uncovered on Americana Drive|
Last Saturday, Sen. David Marsden, Fairfax County Supervisor John Cook, community members, volunteers from VDOT and Fluor-Transurban, and inmates supervised by the Sheriff's office took part in a clean-up along Americana Drive in Annandale. Representatives from Dominion Power contributed to the effort earlier in the week. While the crews were removing wood debris, they uncovered a long forgotten sidewalk.
“In early August I was contacted by the Fairfax County Restoration Project, regarding a large amount of construction debris left on Americana Drive after a recent construction project on I-495. That area was hit hard by the recent housing market collapse, and the construction debris was another blow to this heavily populated area,” Marsden says.
“Normally, in projects like this, it is next to impossible to get this many different organizations on the same page,” Marsden says, “but we were able to work with some truly amazing individuals who had the experience and dedication necessary to pull this effort together.” He expressed appreciation to Steve Shannon and Lauren Mollerup at VDOT, Rosemary Ryan in Supervisor Cook’s office, Sheriff Stan Berry, and the hard-working road crews from Dominion Power and Fluor-Lane for working together on this project.
